Amazon Athena is an interactive query service that makes it easy to analyze data in Amazon S3 using standard SQL. Athena is serverless, so there is no infrastructure to manage, and you pay only for the queries you run. You can now create Views and run queries against those Views. Views simplify how you query data by abstracting away the underlying tables and columns. Views are not materialized and the query that defines the View is run every time the View is referenced.

Additionally, Athena added support for schema mutations, improved error messaging, and bug fixes. Click here to learn more.
